Western Australia


Perth  is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia.
 It is the fourth-most populous city in Australia,

 with an estimated population of 2.02 million (as of 30 June 2014) living in Greater Perth

Perth is part of the South West Land Division of Western Australia,
 with the majority of the metropolitan area of Perth 
located on the Swan Coastal Plain,
 a narrow strip between the Indian Ocean and the Darling Scarp,
 a low coastal escarpment.
 The first areas settled were on the Swan River,
with the city's central business district and port (Fremantle)
 both located on its shores. 

Perth was originally founded by Captain James Stirling in 1829
 as the administrative centre of the Swan River Colony. 
It gained city status (currently vested in the smaller City of Perth) in 1856,
.The city is named after Perth, Scotland,
due to the influence of Sir George Murray
, then British Secretary of State for War and the Colonies.

 The city's population increased substantially as a result
 of the Western Australian gold rushes in the late 19th century,
 largely as a result of emigration from the eastern colonies of Australia.

Airline secrets

A lot of flight attendants have a list of who’s sitting in each seat,
 along with each person’s flight frequency and loyalty status.
 This is why some people appear to get treated way better than others.

Luggage locks are deemed pretty useless
 as zippers can easily be opened using a pen. 
Luggage line workers will use this method 
and run the zipper over the open spot to close it up 
so that you would never know.
